Quilter's Estate Sale Find

Well, after my recent move I was hardly in the mood to go to a "Quilter's Estate Sale" but you know I just couldn't resist.  A gal I work with told me about it, so yesterday at noon, she and I went to Owasso, OK to this sale.  The sale was in a large barn.  Loads of stuff.  Some very unique findings.  I was so disiciplined I surprised myself.  Most of the bulk of the fabric was already gone.  We were told the Guild members arrived at 6:30 and bought huge amounts of fabric for 1.00 a yard.  When we got there, there were still 7 sewing machines left, loads of fabrics, embroidery floss, UFO inpackages with everything needed to make the quilt.  Amazing, this lady was amazing.  I was so tempted to purchase some "Tatting supplies" that she had, I am really not a tatter, even tho I taught myself from watching viedos on YouTube.  She had the most unusual little longated spools that she kept her tatting thread on.  But, I resisted  I did buy a black & white quilt kit she had going, pattern, fabric which she already had cut, etc.the mock Double Wedding Ring pattern and a little Metal Sewing tin (I don't think it was old, but really cute)
anyway.....loads of stuff, this gal spent a fortune.  And there really was a lot of fabric left, but she and I really didn't have the same taste in fabrics.  I know the quilting world will surely miss this lady and she will be happy to know loads of quilters got her stuff.
